        Canary islands "Insula Canariæ alias Fortuniæ dictæ

      Africa: Amsterdam Wolfgangh, Waesbergen, Boom. Someren en Goethals 1686. Copper engraved map of the Canary Islands, from Olfert Dapper's "Description de l'Afrique," the first edition in French; black and white, verso blank. Decorative title cartouche to upper right; compass rose and sailing ships to sea. The map is from the second part of Dapper's work "Description des iIes de l'Afrique." Dark impression; light toning; occasional spotting to blank margins; old ink number to upper margin. Olfert Dapper (1639-1689) was a Dutch physician and scholar devoted to historical and geographical studies. He produced several finely illustrated volumes describing travels in Africa, Asia, Asia Minor, the Middle East, drawing upon the most reliable eye-witness accounts as well as his own library of travel books. His works were authoritative and very popular, and especially noteworthy for their excellent illustrations and maps. First edition in French of Dapper's"Description de l'Afrique, contenant Les Noms, la Situation & les Confins de toutes ses Parties, leurs Rivières, leurs Villes & leurs Habitations, leurs Plantes & leurs Animaux ; les Moeurs, les Coûtumes, la Langue, les Richesses, la Religion & le Gouvernement de ses Peuples. Avec Des Cartes des Etats, des Provinces & des Villes, & des Figures en Taille-douce, qui représentent les habits & les principales Ceremonies des Habitans, les Plantes & les Animaux les moins connus. Traduite du Flamand "originally published in Dutch in 1668 as "Naukeurige Beschrijvingen der Afrikaensche gewesten" & "Naukeurige beschrijvinge der Afrikaensche Eylanden " Dapper's Description of Africa: "covers the entire continent - the Islamic north, from Morocco to Egypt, Abyssinia, central and southern Africa, and Madagascar, Malta, the Canaries and other islands of the African coast" (Alastair Hamilton, Europe and the Arab World, page 26). Although he had never visited Africa, Dapper's book is still of considerable value, because he made use not only of published sources (especially De Marees), but also of manuscripts which have now been; lost he relied very heavily on records of the Dutch West India Company, especially a collection made by Samuel Bloomaerts, one of its officials. His work became well-known, and is still a key text for Africanists. It was translated into English by John Ogilby and published in 1670, when a German translation was also published. There was a second Dutch edition in 1676 and the first French translation was published ten years later. Mendelssohn I, p.413. Cox I, p. 361; Gay 219. Africa Canary Islands

        Plate 96, Vue du paysage et de la Maison Royale de St. Cir

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Plate 96, Vue du paysage et de la Maison Royale de St. Cir, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition with light foxing in the margins. This engraving illustrates an expansive view of the French countryside around what is now known as Saint-Cyr-l'École. In 1686, King Louis XIV established a school here for young impoverished women from noble families, at the request of Madame de Maintenon the morganatic second wife of the king. Noblemen and women are seen sitting and standing in the clearing, interacting and enjoying the views below. The large school with the blue roof and bell tower is seen in the distance with the town and surrounding areas as well. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles . Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris , was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles , along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility, by requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies.

        ESPERIENZE INTORNO A DIVERSE COSE NATURALI, E PARTICOLARMENTE A QUELLE, CHE CI SON PORTATE DALL'INDIE. Fatte da Francesco Redi, Aretino, Accademico della Crusca, e scritte in una lettera al reverendissimo Padre Atanasio Chircher della Compagnia di Giesù. In Firenze, Per Piero Matini all'Ins. del Leone, 1686.

      Seconda edizione. Cm.26x19. Pg.(6), 122. Legatura cartonata coeva, con unghie. Esemplare in barbe. Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero, con tavola calcografica raffigurante il frullone della Crusca con il motto "Il più bel fior ne coglie". Fuori testo sei tavole, con dettagli di "Pietre del serpente cobra de Cabelo; Pepe di Ciapa; Finocchio della China; Pietra de' serpenti di Mombazza; Pietre de' serpenti chiamate iguane; Radice della manique; Radice di Gio. Lopez Pegneiro; Vainiglie o vero Lombi lunghi aromatici del Clusio; Foglie dell'albero delle vainiglie; Semi neri delle vainiglie veduti col microscopio; Nidi delle rondini della Coccincina nella loro natural grandezza; Foglia dell'albero della scorza chiamata Chinachina"; Frutto dell'albero chiamato Araticù". Fresco esemplare, ampi i margini. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia). Seconda edizione del testo in cui Redi confuta alcune teorie correnti, diffuse principalmente dai missionari, circa strane virtù soprannaturali attribuite alle sostanze studiate. Di notevole interesse, ad esempio, le parti dedicate al tabacco, alle acque di ogni tipo, al mal di denti, agli animali esotici, etc.

Contemporary folding Vellum, 4° (Spener, 1635-1705, was born in Ribeauvillé in Upper Alsace (now part of France). After a brief time at the grammar school of Colmar, he went to Strasbourg in 1651, where he devoted himself to the study of philology, history and philosophy, and won his degree of master (1653) by a disputation against the philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. He then became private tutor to the princes Christian and Charles of the Palatinate, and lectured in the university on philology and history. From 1659 to 1662 he visited the universities of Basel, Tübingen and Geneva, and commenced the study of heraldry, which he pursued throughout his life. In Geneva especially his religious views and tendencies were turned in the direction of mysticism. Highly influenced by Johann Arndt, Lewis Bayly, Jean de Labadie, and Theophil Großgebauer, Spener's own writings display an emphasis on personal transformation through spiritual rebirth and renewal. It is this focus on individual devotion and piety that places him within the realm of Pietism, so Spener has been called the ""Father of Pietism"".) ".

First issue of Terra Rossa's famous account detailing discoveries in the New World, as denoted by the 1686 date and the privilege below the imprint reading "Et Privilegio del Serenissimo Principe." Includes much information on Venetian explorers, going so far as to credit Marco Polo with discovering Australia, and attempts to rename Terra Australis as Terra Australe Magallanica to honor Magellan. In this work, Terra Rossa "attempted to prove that Venetians had discovered all lands unknown to the ancients, including America and Terra Australis…" (Hiatt, TERRA INCOGNITA, p. 261). He also defends the claims of the Zeno brothers to have made a northern discovery of America prior to Columbus.

        HISTOIRE DE LA DECADENCE DE L'EMPIRE APRES CHARLEMAGNE, et des différends des Empereurs avec les Papes au sujet des Investitures et de l'Indépendance.

      1686 - A Paris, Chez Sébastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1686. In-quarto (199 X 263) veau fauve granité, armes dorées sur le premier plat, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés avec fleuron central, pièce de titre maroquin grenat, coupes ornées, tranches mouchetées en rouge (reliure de l'époque) ; titre-frontispice , titre orné d'une vignette, (7) ff. (épitre et sommaire), 575 pages, (1) page et (1) f. de permission et privilège. Un feuillet (pages 543-544) est entièrement manuscrit sur papier ancien, en un fac-similé bien réalisé, probablement au XIXe. Coiffes et coins restaurés. EDITION illustrée d'un beau titre-frontispice entièrement gravé par Jacques Follain d'après un dessin de Pierre Sevin, d'une vignette gravée sur la page de titre (marque de l'imprimeur), d'une tête-de-chapitre gravée par Chauveau d'après Jacques Lalouète ou Lalouette, d'une lettrine gravée. La première édition a été éditée en 1679 (CIORANESCU, 44423). Louis MAIMBOURG (1620-1686), célèbre jésuite, a composé un grand nombre d'ouvrages, notamment historiques, qui connurent un certain succès. Le philosophe et écrivain français Pierre Bayle (1647-1706) trouvait en effet que Maimbourg avait un talent particulier pour l'histoire : « Il répand dans ses ouvrages historiques beaucoup d'agrément, plusieurs traits vifs, et quantité d'instructions incidentes. Il y a peu d'historiens, même parmi ceux qui écrivent mieux que lui et qui ont plus de savoir, qui aient l'adresse d'attacher le lecteur comme il le fait. » (MICHAUD, XXVI, 130-131). Exemplaire en BEL ETAT, aux ARMES de Thomas II de MORAND, baron du Mesnil-Garnier, seigneur d'Eterville, Courseulles et Soulles (1584-1651). « Comme il avait fondé en 1620 des prix à perpétuité qui devaient être distribués au collège du Mont à Caen, on trouve ses armes frappées sur des volumes publiés après sa mort. [.] Ce dernier fer [fer n°3] n'a, en raison de son style, certainement pas appartenu à Thomas de Morand ; peut-être a-t'il été exécuté au XVIIIe siècle pour être apposé sur les volumes donnés en prix en souvenir du donateur, en remplacement des anciens fers. » (OHR, 2134, fer n°3).

First editions and one of the grandest productions of the Royal Society; this handsome folio contains the collected works of Malpighi (1628-94), the founder of histology and the greatest of the microscopists; they are today very scarce on the market. The first title is the first complete edition of his collected works published during his lifetime; all three works are splendid examples of bookmaking. Included here are Malpighi's great masterpieces on the anatomy of plants, the embryonic development of the chick (which makes him the founder of descriptive or iconographic embryology), the anatomy of the silkworm (the first monograph on an invertebrate), the discovery of the existence of capillaries (which completed the chain of the circulation of the blood postulated by Harvey), and his observations on the lungs (which overthrew the current conceptions of the pulmonary tissues demonstrating their true vesicular nature). Malpighi's writings were first collected in Le Clerc and Manget's Bibliotheca Anatomica (Geneva: 1685), but without his Anatome Plantarum and De Bombyce. Also, "the two folio volumes of this London edition are far more handsomely printed, in much larger type, and the drawings are beautifully reproduced and widely spaced upon the plates" (Adelmann). Very good copies. With the fine and large late 17th-century engraved armorial bookplate of Pierre de Chalud. ❧ Adelmann, I, p. 509. Frati 2, 4, & 4bis. I. Garrison-Morton 66.

        Several Chirurgical Treatises. By Richard Wiseman, Serjeant-Chirurgeon.

      London Printed by R. Norton and J. Macock for R. Royston 1686 - Second Edition, folio, half-title, short tear in outer blank margin of the dedication leaf to Charles 11, worming on upper inner blank margins of the last 100pp. but not affecting the text at any point, with a divisional title-page for each treatise, [16], 577, [15] pp., contemporary calf, extremities rubbed, corners rubbed through to the boards, head and foot of spine chipped. The first edition of this work was published in 1676 and was republished unchanged for this second edition. "For each topic Wiseman examines the anatomy, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, prognosis and management, adding selected case histories or observations from his vast experience. These personal observations, some brief and some in extensive detail, concern 600 individual patients . constitute a rich and unique historical record of surgical reality in seventeenth-century Britain and have yet to be analysed fully. In Europe only the 600 observations of Wilhelm Fabry of Hilden, published earlier in the century, are comparable . The eight treatises concern ulcers, tumours, diseases of the anus, king's evil, wounds, gunshot wounds, fractures and luxations, and lues venerea (syphilis and gonorrhoea) respectively.[his] immense expertise in traumatic surgery is particularly evident in his account of gunshot wounds, including severe compound limb fractures." - ODNB. ******"Wiseman is our surgical Sydenham. He by his skill and personality helped to raise the whole status of surgery. He was the first of the great British surgeons." - Power, pp. 198-201.

Smooth spine, plain endleaves, gilt edges. (The gold oxidised, remains of two of the original yellow silk ties). Contained within a modern blue cloth drop-over box, lettered down the spine on a black goatskin label. A copy of the officially published resolutions of the 1685-1686 session of the Bohemian legislative body, the Zemsky snem. The British Library has a collection of 41 such publications, the first two dated 1683 and 1694 and the rest being eighteenth century. The Library of Congress has 26 publications dating from 1721 to 1822. This is a fine copy in what must be the official binding. One large and rather crowded block was used for both covers, with the central cartouche separately tooled. The block appears to have been slightly damaged at some stage, as seen in the break in the border on the left-hand side. The gold alloy has oxidised, as is so often the case on these vellum bindings.

First Italian edition, translated from the original Spanish (1683) by Ambrosio Ortiz. This is the official biography of Sanvitores, written in order to produce evidence for canonization. Sanvitores (1627 ¿ 1672) was a Spanish Jesuit missionary, recognized as founder of the first Catholic Church in Guam (the land being donated by local Chief Kepuha) and for establishing the Spanish presence in the Mariana islands (Ladrones); he arrived in Mexico in 1660 and in 1662 journeyed from Acapulco to the Philippines where he remained for 6 years, when permission was finally obtained for his mission to the Ladrones islands in the North Pacific, renamed Marianas at this time in honor of Maria Anna of Austria. A life of Luis de Medina, one of his companions martyred in the Marianas in 1670 was compiled from documents supplied by Sanvitores. His life ended abruptly, being martyred on Guam in 1672. A fundamental work, containing one of first detailed accounts of the Marianas in the Pacific; much also included respecting the Philippines and Guatemala. Illustrated with a fine engraved plate by Pesche, shows the martyrdom of Father Sanvitores, woodcut device on last folio. Sabin, 26591. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire des Avanturiers qui se sont signalez dans les Indes contenant ce qu´ils on fait de plus remarquable depuis vignt années

      1686 - The rare first French edition, of what´s arguably the most influential buccaneering account; from the Hamsworth library. 1686. Paris. Jacques Lefebvre. Two volumes in 12mo (164 mm x 87 mm). 1 [blank] + 15 ff. + 342 + 12 ff. + 1 [blank]; 1 [blank] + 3 ff. + 384 + 12 ff. Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands, richly gilt and lettered, worn but still an attractive binding in its original condition. A fine copy, gently browned as often and with a few foxing spots, second title water stained, short tears to folding plates. First French edition. Besides its rarity, this edition is also important for its illustrations don´t derive from either the Dutch original or two earliest English editions. The translation was prepared by Frontigniéres, from Exquemelin´s own manuscript; the first edition in all was published in Dutch in 1678 under the title De Americaensche Zee-Roovers. The success was immediate, translations followed and editions continued until the 18th century. Exquemelin (1645 ¿ 1707) was a French Huguenot, in 1666 made sale towards the Antilles, his ship was allegedly attacked by pirates and after reaching Tortuga he was apparently sold to a local who subsequently sold to a surgeon of some sort, he would teach him his office and eventually grant him his freedom against payment. At an uncertain date, Exquemelin became a privateer; as a pirate, he participated in the raid of Maracaibo in 1669 and that of Panama in 1670 under Morgan. His experiences and observations were concentrated in his memoires. The detail with which Exquemelin describes the lootings, plundering, life and adventures of these seamen is, and was unequaled for a long time. The illustrations include seven folding maps and views; the Maracaibo and Panama maps closely follow the Dutch, a large folding map of the Spanish Main is entirely new to this edition. The text from this edition was substantially augmented by the editor, Journel; he is also responsible for shading light onto the term ¿buccaneer¿.
